This 102ha dairy farm is a credit to the owners and their meticulous custodianship of the land for 32 years. The mainly easy rolling farm is very well appointed and the 30 bale rotary dairy shed features an in-shed meal feed system, automatic cup removers and a double banked plate cooler with ice bank. Support buildings include three calf sheds, two implement sheds and a workshop. The effluent system comprises a large concrete holding sump, to be upgraded this season to include a new lined storage pond. Average production is 112,402kgMS and presently 293 cows are being milked off the 89 hectare dairy platform. Cows are wintered on and supplemented with maize silage and grass baleage. The pastures reflect a good fertilizer regime with the pastures being healthy and clean of weeds. Subdivision, access and fences are very tidy, fences being a mix of conventional and electric. Surface Water take is from a nearby spring source and the consent is for 303 cows. Soils are Tirau Ash. The enchanting, private arboretum to the front of the property has captivated garden visitors for many years and presently, the tui, korimako and kereru are delighting in the spring growth. The main home sits nicely alongside the trees enabling a close up view of the resident birdlife. With an open plan living area, four large bedrooms plus an office there's room for all. A covered courtyard between the home and double garage provides a sheltered space from which to enjoy the winter sun. The second home is also four bedrooms and has great views from its elevated site. Nearby, Lake Arapuni, Maungatautari Ecological Island and the Waikato River Trails provide plenty of reasons for off farm fun. A little further afield are Te Awamutu and Putaruru for all of your supplies. You'll find plenty of opportunity for the whole family to completely immerse yourselves in the friendly local community.
